But those stock photo people are the real walkaways!
Yeah, my favorite was the just turned 18 yo who looking back joined Twitter when 16 and has been MAGA since joining.

Um, you're not getting it...

it is possible that at the time this author wrote that first sentence they were in a lot of pain over police injuring, or shooting and wounding, or killing them for no legitimate reason. Now add this escalating action of white people calling the police for ridiculous, racist reasons on black people doing innocuous, perfectly reasonable, understandable things- could have been the last straw emotionally for the writer.

Plus it's not such a stretch to think like that at least intermittently - when we (as white people begin to see the tip of the iceberg - via citizen phone videos of what can/has happened to black people when police stop them) after a a bunch of these incidents come to light in a short period of time, or when black people heard about incidents that never make it to social media because there was no video, or some police turn off their cameras etc.

Trying to go into your own building and your own home while black, well that's a problem too for this white woman. Apartment Patty. These people are being emboldened by somebody. Hmmm, who could that be? Head scratcher.

As horrible as this country is right now, at least we now have "Dollar Tree Eva Braun" in the lexicon.
